The essence of plastic surgery is the quest for synergy between form and function. Its objective, in simplest terms, is an improved quality of life. Dr Jonathan Toogood undertakes a journey with each of his patients to help them achieve the ultimate goal of being the very best they can be – not just physically, but also mentally, psychologically and socially. Instead of just performing procedure after procedure and leaving patients to their own devices, he empowers them through surgery and other modalities.
His vision to offer patients a comprehensive plastic and reconstructive surgery service is now a reality with Somerset Surgery – his private aesthetic surgery facility in Somerset West, Western Cape. Although surgery forms the cornerstone of his practice, he offers his patients in-house access to MASC – a Medical Aesthetic Skin Care and Laser Clinic incorporated within his practice. Dr Toogood has trained highly experienced skincare therapists to walk alongside his patients during the pre- and post-operative phases of their treatment. This ensures that their surgical results are optimised. The therapists at MASC Laser Clinic have developed the Rapid Healing programme that assists Dr Toogood’s patients with wound and scar management – making their recovery period as comfortable as possible.
